All the older guys always say that all the time i’ve actually heard that before they’re just being friendly25
I don't see what would be strange about this. I mean, compared to him, she is very young.11
Not a big deal.. it's an old person term of endearment.11
What Girls & Guys Said
I'm really old school, was taught by the Greatest Generation. Anytime you call a woman a "Lady" even if she's a tomboy it's a sign of respect. "Young" should also be seen as flattering though some might take it as an insult if they see it as a way of demeaning their acquired knowledge and wisdom. However it's never meant that way and women should appreciate it.21
Just a minor term of endearment, innocently and politely used, Paris.
When I am done giving most of my newer clients a massage the first few times (ie, before a first name basis), I will always say "You're all ready to face the day, young lady" or "You're all set to go, young man! Enjoy your day, " or something similar to that. And in reality, almost all of them ARE younger than I am. :- )11
I am 58 and I do the same thing with many women.
I most certainly would do it with a 20-year old, young lady.21
That is normal courteous conversation and verbiage.
Here is your package Mr. Doe (or sir)
Thank you very much young lady.
Have a nice day.12
For me it is a term of endearment that doesn’t come off as creepy11
The Gentleman is a product of his time when 'young lady' was a polite term address,32
Seeing the age difference I think he was just being polite. I think it's better than saying "hey you ". Lol11
Sounds pretty normal ParPar. What do you think is going on?11
She is a young lady to him.
This woke shit is getting carried away.11
Compared to him she could be a granddaughter so I guess he was being courteous11
Nothing wrong with that.11
That's what was on her name tag11
I do that all the time.21
Sounds correct to me 🥰11
Nothing wrong with that Paris xx21
Didn't you ever read To Kill a Mockingbird?14
I guess he was wrong to assume she was a lady21
That's common in the south11
Sounds like a normal respectful thing to say.11
He's just being respectful.11

She IS young, and I assume she is a lady, or at least female.
It's just a polite figure of speech. He was being a gentleman. Another polite alternative would be to call her Miss or Ma'am. It's better than 'bub', 'kid', 'girly' or 'tits', or asking her gender identity.
What's up with waitresses who say "What can I get you, 'hon'?"? Or people who refer to strangers as 'dear'? Does anybody mind?
I've had guys say to me "How can I help you, 'young man'". In fact, a middle aged man matter of factly asking an older woman in her 70s or 80s, "How can I help you 'young lady'"? can make her day.
Of course! When I am done giving most of my newer clients a massage the first few times (ie, before a first name basis), I will always say "You're all ready to face the day, young lady" or "You're all set to go, young man! Enjoy your day, " or something similar to that. And in reality, almost all of them ARE younger than I am. :- )
